      Equilibrium study of the mixed ligand complex formation of FeIII with boric acid in the absence and in the presence of 2,2′-bipyridine, 1,10-phenanthroline, diethylenetriamine and triethylenetetramine (L) in different molar ratios provides evidence of formation of Fe(OH)2+, Fe(OH)2+ , Fe(L)3+, Fe(H2BO4),Fe(OH)(H2BO4), Fe(OH)2(H2BO4)2-, Fe(L)(H2BO4) and Fe2(L)2(BO4)+ complexes. Fe(L)23+, Fe(L)2(H2BO4) and Fe2(L)4(BO4)+ complexes are also indicated with 2,2′-bipyridine and 1,10-phenanthroline. Complex formation equilibria and stability constants of the complexes at 25 ± 0.l°C in aqueous solution at a fixed ionic strength,I = 0.1 mol dm-3 (NaNO3) have been determined by potentiometric method.

      Substitution inertcis-diaqua CrIII complexes: cis-[(Lx−)CrIII(H2O)2](3−x)+ derived from N-donor ligands (Lx−) viz., bipyridine and 1,10-phenanthroline (x = 0) and N,O-donor ligands viz., nitrilotriacetate and anthranilate N,N-diacetate (x = 3) titrate as diprotic acids in aqueous solution and enhance the acidity of otherwise weakly acidic boric acid (H3BO3) producing mononuclear and binuclear mixed ligand CrIII-borate complexes: [(L)Cr(H2BO4)]x− and [(L)Cr(BO4)Cr(L)](1−2x)+ respectively through coordination of the H2O and/or OH ligands, cis-coordinated in the CrIII-complexes on the electron deficient BIII-atom in H3BO3 with release of protons. Deprotonation of the parent CrIII-complexes and their reactions with H3BO3 have been investigated by potentiometric method in aqueous solution,I = 0.1 mol dm−3 (NaNO3) at 25 ±0.1°C. The equilibrium constants have been evaluated by computerized methods and the tentative stoichiometry of the reactions have been worked out on the basis of the speciation curves
